The Style Mum Blogger Meet: On a beautiful afternoon in London last Friday, I met up with a group of style bloggers for an afternoon full of chat, laughs and vats of Prosecco.
Being a newbie on the 'blogging street' I was a little apprehensive meeting up with these established bloggers but they really could not have been more welcoming, friendly and fun. It was fab to catch up with all these mum, style bloggers who are all real women, have kids, jobs and are trying to juggle life and of course writing these wonderful style blogs.
So here are the details:
Who: A group of Mum Style Bloggers from the UK, Ireland and America. The guest list was as follows:
|Left: Avril - Schoolgatestyle|
Right: Fiona - Avenue 57
|Left: Helen - The Flaky Fashionista|
Right: Donna - I Won't Wear Sludge Brown
|Left: Sue - Susie So So|
Right: Natalie - GlamRosie
|Left: Kat - Does my Bum look 40 in this|
Right: Joanna - Poppy's Style
|Left: Marlene - Chocolate Cookies and Candies|
Right: Michelle - My Fashionable 40s
We ate: Pizzas, Garlic Breads and a huge amounts of nibbles
We drank: 8 Magnums of Prosecco (yes, 8!!)
We talked: about blogging, life, kids and laughed alot
We had a photoshoot: By Marlene from Chocolate Cookies and Candies, who is not only a fantastic writer but also a truly talented photographer! All the photographs of the bloggers above and my photograph below were expertly taken by Marlene.
We wore: Susie So So delicate and beautiful handmade bracelets, see Sue's online shop here, prices from £4. The handmade bracelets and necklaces make beautiful, original gifts..a great idea for Mothers Day....
I wore: I felt under slight pressure as I was meeting style bloggers who are all super chic but as usual I left it to the last minute and ended up shoving on comfortable clothes with my 'go to' saviour The Pink Coat! I had originally worn nude heels but am terrible at walking in them and went flying across the restaurant floor (soooo not cool!)...much to the amusement of our fellow diners...so they were quickly abandoned in favour for my New Balance (always carry a comfortable option in my huge bag!) And here are Marlene's photos of the look:
Jumper: Topshop Unique
Jeans: Topshop Baxter
Trainers: New Balance
Necklace: Ginette NY
It truly was lovely to meet up with these lovely ladies who are not only amazingly stylish but also incredibly supportive, welcoming and warm. It was a fantastic day and one we hope to repeat soon, maybe next time in Dublin..!
Thanks ladies for a fantastic day xx
